Homemade Macarons the Easy Way {& Makecaron Giveaway}

I’ve never seen a prettier cookie than a macaron, have you? Their gorgeous layers, majestic flavors, and dreamy colors always make them stand out from the rest. Have you ever made your own macarons? I must admit that I’ve always been a little intimidated by them and have left them to the bakeries. Macaron shells are so temperamental. But now there is an easy way to make them. Francois Payard, from Payard Patisserie  sends his shells (chocolate, vanilla, or raspberry), the very ones he sales in his patisseries, directly to your home so that you can fill them (really simple) and create your very own macarons. His MakeCarons  include recipes for several filling variations, and the rest is up to you. You can use his ganache recipes as a base to build from adding any flavor that you can imagine, or you can even use marshmallow creme, peanut butter, or nutella. Isn’t that super cool? Everyone will think you are so fancy šŸ˜‰ when they see what you’ve made.

I used the chocolate shells and filled them with fluffer nutter cream. 
Too. Die. For!
What do you think? Sounds like fun, right? Payard Patisserie is going to send three JCD readers one box of Makecarons to try out for themselves! All you have to do is use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.

    Goodness, now this is a great idea! I’ve made macarons once. They turned out okay but I was a nervous mess the entire time they were in the oven (almost 4 years ago!) Love this idea. Visiting today from Sits Girls.
